More than every Fourth of the Corona uses-Warn-App
In mid-June, the Federal government commissioned Corona-Warning-the App was made available. Since then it has been downloaded millions of times. In a survey more than a quarter of the respondents indicated that they use the App.
Since mid-June, available Corona-Warning-App is intended to help to identify chains of Infection faster and more comprehensive and effective to interrupt. If each and every Single one of will quickly inform you about a possible infection with the novel Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 through contact with an Infected, he or she can react quickly and protect themselves and others, the Federal government. A survey of the “BfR-Corona-Monitor” has now shown that especially Younger with the help of the App you want to protect.
Younger people use the App rather than Older
As the Federal Institute for risk assessment (BfR) in a recent communication, writes, downloaded the Corona-Warning-App is already a million times. According to the experts 28 percent of the more than 14-Year olds in Germany to use the App. This is the results of the survey of the current “BfR-Corona-monitor” of the BfR show.
Younger people use the App, apparently, rather than Older. “40 percent of under 40-year-olds say that they take the App to help”, explains BfR President Professor Dr. Dr. Andreas Hensel. “In the case of the more vulnerable people aged 60 and over compared with 19 percent significantly less.”
Mask duty is accepted by a majority of the population
The use of social media as a source of information for the novel Coronavirus is also different between the age groups. While these play for people of 60 years of almost no role, about half of the 40-year-old to learn with your help. This percentage is across all age groups around a quarter.
On some of the implications of the Coronavirus epidemic has accustomed the population, apparently. So more and more people now accept since the last survey, the (now loosened) contact restrictions. While since may, about 70 percent of the respondents rated the contact restrictions, as appropriate, increases of this proportion in the current survey to 79 percent.
The obligation to Wear a mouth-nose cover in shops and on public transport is even accepted by 88 percent of respondents.
The cases of infection in workers from meat processing plants is not increased, according to the BfR, apparently, fears about food contamination. As food were considered before the two weeks of 13 percent of respondents as a likely mode of Transmission of the Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 – this week, this decreased to eight percent. This stance also coincides with the evaluation of the BfR, which is an infection via food is unlikely. (ad)
